Reuse and Recycle

As strange as this sounds, reusing water can be a very effective way of conserving water.  When waiting for a shower to heat up, collect the cold water to reuse elsewhere – like watering your plants. Also consider using leftover water from cooking and boiling.

City Office will be CLOSED

The city of Carlton would like to remind all snow removal operators/property owners that it is unlawful to deposit snow on or next to a public highway or street.


Minnesota law prohibits the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow onto public roadways. This includes the ditch and right-of-way area along the roadside. 


This would include pushing the snow from your driveway across the street onto the right-of-way of a vacant lot.  The snow from your driveway and sidewalks needs to remain on your property.


According to state law, violations are considered misdemeanors, but civil penalties also apply if the placement of snow creates a hazard such as a slippery area, frozen rut or bump that contributes to a motor vehicle or pedestrian crash. The civil liability can extend to both the property owner and the person who placed the snow.


Hazards created by improper placement of snow on or near a public roadway include drainage problems, drifting, sight obstruction and safe accessibility. Special attention should be made to keep fire hydrants, crosswalks, intersections, entrances and exits clean and unobstructed.


We appreciate your cooperation in this manner.
